Strawberry Cream Pie Recipe

Strawberry Cream Pie

2 ½ cups strawberries

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

2 Tbsp. frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed

3 slightly beaten egg whites

1 Tbsp. tequila or orange juice

1 3-oz. package ladyfingers, split

2 Tbsp. orange juice

½ 8-oz. container frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed

Sliced strawberries (optional) and Fresh mint (optional)

Place the 2 1/2 cups strawberries in blender container or food processor bowl.  Cover and blend or processor until nearly smooth.  Measure the strawberries, and you should have about 1 ½ cups.

In a medium saucepan stir together the sugar and gelatin.  Stir in the blended strawberries and lemonade concentrate.  Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture bubbles and the gelatin is dissolved.  Gradually stir about half of the gelatin mixture into the egg whites.  Return mixture to the saucepan.  Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat about 3 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened.  Do not boil.  Pour onto a medium bowl; stir in tequila or orange juice.  Chill until mixture mounds when spooned, stirring occasionally (about 2 hours)

Meanwhile, cut half of the split ladyfingers in half crosswise; stand on end around the outside edge of a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom or a 9-inch springform pan.  Arrange remaining spit ladyfingers in the bottom of pan.  Drizzle the 2 tablespoons orange juice over the ladyfingers.  Then fold the whipped topping into strawberry mixture.  Spoon into prepared pan.  Cover and chill about 2 hours or until set.  If desired, garnish with sliced strawberries and mint.    Makes 8 servings
